I can't figure it out. What's so great about Malady? I keep seeing it on everybody. ****, I just read a Kassadin guide where the OP suggested that it's good on Kass.

I've seen in on the majority of Twitches (Why take over Tiamat?)

I've seen it on a bunch of Trynds (Don't get me started)

I've seen it on Gangplank, I've seen in on every physical carry, from Ashe to Yi to Jax.

Seriously, Malady sucks compared to crit damage. Why do people rush it?

Had a damage shaco on my team get one. Interesting idea on paper because the extra damage should stack up quick with both him and his image hitting a target.

It helped that I was opening for him with malp, so he usually had a little time beat on whatever target he wanted.

People use it for 2 goods reasons :

1.Its cheap
2.50% aspd
3.Gives some life leech

Which means you can have it early and it heps to farm pretty easy.

Yeah but Stark's is only 700g more. There's no reason to ever buy Malady unless you're Shaco.

I've heard it's passive ignore armor.

Just a cost-efficient item overall, that's why people get it.
Yes starks maybe better (on melee's at least ) but again for it's cost its worth it.

stark's is a LOT better than malady. the really good teams usually prefer starks over malady by a lot.
